Christian & Missionary Alliance in Saskatoon History

Historical Flashbacks


The First Church, University Drive & 13th Street, Aug. 1, 1933 - April 30, 1938

In 1933, Rev. James Murray came to Saskatoon to begin an Alliance Church under the Christian & Missionary Alliance. That seed of faith has grown to a family of nine Alliance Churches in our city. We invite you to view the evidence of God's goodness and faithfulness as we celebrate the wonderful things God has done through faith.
